Rest In Peace, Bernhard...

One of my dearest long-time friends' of 24 years just lost her husband. Very sadly, he took his own life... I cannot tell you how much shock I am in... and after losing my dear friend, Mira a few weeks ago.. this new tragedy is very overwhelming. This said, I am taking a break from blogging for awhile... I am not doing too well right now.

I have slid into a depressive state and not coping with things very well right now. I just want to share this bit of personal information with you because I don't really share my personal feelings here to often... just photos and light stuff.. But, I do know that you are all here in support.

Please pray for me, send your positive energy and light.. and pray that I will regain my morale and confidence.. because I'm at a very low point right now- and I am just hoping that I can come out of it soon...

Thanks...

I am sorry Leesa for the loss of your friends. Life sometimes seems so unjust and it is very hard for those who stay behind. I can understand how depressed you feel. Although if you feel in a very depressive mood you may wish to see your doctor. Sometimes a chemical imbalance can bring added depression that can be helped.

We went to Ohio just three weeks ago and yesterday before coming to Nashville to visit our daughter we received an email saying that our dear friend in Southern Ohio had passed away that evening. I felt terrible because we did not drive to Southern Ohio when we were there and could have seen our friend a last time. Sometimes life is very sad.

I hope that you will soon feel better.

You have had a tough year. Life is like that I think, you never get just one problem or sadness to deal with, always one after the other, just to see how strong you are.

I do hope this is the end of your run of bad things and you start to feel better soon.

Such sad news, again... I'm so sorry to hear you aren't feeling great. I will call you later. Hopefully we can meet up today. :(

Dear Leesa, thinking of you and hoping you feel better soon. Please make use of all the things available to you - family, friends, doctors, don't go through this alone. I have heard of www.soshelpline.org which works with english-speaking expats living in France. Sending happy vibes, look after yourself x x x

Lees, I am SO SORRY and will pray for you. I'll also add you and your friend to our church prayer request. Just know that tons of prayers for comfort are going out on your behalf. Prayer is powerful and I know the Lord will comfort you during this difficult time. Please let me know if you need anything specifically!

My dearest blogger friends...

Thank you SOOO much for your encouragement, prayers, love, support and everything to help me through this hard time--- It's been a rough road the past few months and even on the positive note that I have a good life, in spite of the sad and tragic things that pass through it-- I will remain on top- even when I'm on the bottom!! With friends like you all, and the love and support from my family and friends, it makes going through all of this a lot easier, let me tell you all!
I do appreciate to no end- the love, prayers and support so keep them all coming... I know that life is full of ups and downs, good, bad and tragic/sorrow... and it makes us all stronger in the end- just the 'getting through it that is the difficult part!'

Love and light to you all...
Thanks for leaving your comments here and for wishing me well..
God bless you all and I'm praying for all of you, too..
Leesa
